Who We Are:

NCARK is a non-profit organization in the state of North Carolina. We are advocates for the practice of Herpetoculture; the non-traditional agricultural pursuit of farming high-quality captive bred reptiles and amphibians for conservation projects, zoos, museums, research facilities, education, entertainment and pets. 

What We Do:

We are dedicated to conservation through captive propagation, and espouse the ideal of, “Preserving Reptiles & Amphibians for Our Future”. We endorse a “Keepers Code of Ethics.”  Our members are veterinarians, researchers, breeders, manufacturers, feed producers, hobbyists and pet owners.
